Large backyard garden. I have fruit trees, vegie beds, bee hive and chooks. My house is in walking distance to shopping centre, bus, leisure centre and library. I have some internet access, and bedroom has shower and basin attached. I volunteer in the Grovedale Community Garden(it has a facebook page); in the Grovedale Community Orchard(also has a facebook page); and buy and help with the Grovedale Veggie Box which supplies me with fresh, organic vegetables(also facebook page). From all these places I learn more about how to sustainably garden and look after my chickens.

The Block is a 27 acre bush block, 5km from Gosford. We are surrounded by State Forest and and have many with native animals and birds visit us. It is very peaceful but also close to town and easy access to the train to Sydney. We owner built our home using sandstone and recycled timbers, we run on solar power and have composting toilets (they don't smell!). We have accomodation for two in our spare room (comfy double bed). Work includes gardening, maintenance and perhaps a little building. What would suit us best is Woofers who are prepared to work 3 full days and then have 3 days free to do what they like but we are willing to be flexible.

I'm turning my life towards a healthier path as I don't drink or smoke anymore and trying to be vegetarian. So learning about the farm lifestyle and and knowing what I could achieve learning from the hosts itself is exciting for me and a great place to start. I'd also like to have my own farm one day. That'll be ideal.

I have come to WWOOF in hopes to engage directly with positive ecology; an interest that is not limited to one form of practice. Through engagement with prominent and emerging farming practices, I hope to discover more techniques and strategies which may bring them together. I hope to find ways of balancing cash crop seasons with cover crops and rotational grazing. I hope to find ways of practising agroforestry with high biodiversity. I wish to learn about all aspects of farming; from the hunter-gather and permaculture skills from which we began, to the organic bio-dynamic agroforests to which we will go.

Shambhala Oasis is a 10 acre rain forest property in Northern NSW Rivers Region which is being developed as a Spiritual Sanctuary and Learning Centre. One component of the vision is Shambhala Enterprise Cottage Industries, which includes organic production of fruit, veges & bush tucker superfoods. We are at the early stages of developing this property with quite a lot of planting, watering, bush fire mitigation, and building maintenance to do. The property is also dedicated land for nature, and we are blessed with a huge range of native birds, cute bush wallabies and panoramic views. Suitable for mature honest people with a sincere interest in non violence, spirituality & systemic change who can work unsupervised and love wildlife. This is an alcohol, tobacco & other drug free space thats loosely run like a post modern ashram or meditation centre with simple plant based diet.

I joined WWOOF because I do not just want to be another tourist in Australia. I want to experience the country, its people and culture with a more concrete approach. After a ton of research, I came across WWOOF and it seemed like what I was looking for.

My true passion has always been with animals and nature. Being with and taking care of animals is what instantly reloads me with energy and makes me truly happy. Back in Sweden I will eventually start my education to become a vet nurse. Being outside in nature is also something that I always loved, wether it is an adventure, such as hiking, climbing, diving or sailing; or simply just working outside, I always loved it. Anyway, right now things are not as they used to be for any of us with COVID-19. I'm still here in Australia trying to find a place to stay and a volunteer work anywhere in Lisborne and Far North Coast, NSW area. Until the 25 November I will travel up the coast with my friend. My plan is to find a place to stay and do some WWOOFing again because that's something I really enjoy, meeting new people - share stories, knowledge and work outside in nature. Contact me through my number or e-mail in the contact details. I will be able to come and help in the end of November after 25th with what ever you may need. The ideal time to stay for me would be about 3-4 weeks. 2 or 5 weeks is also okay! Hope to see you guys soon! Cheers and love, Alice

Farming Methods: Biodynamic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home, Caravan
We are gradually restoring a neglected farm, a beautiful 180 acres bordering NP and close to beaches. Low-tech hard work & BD preparations are slowly producing results on our pastures. Our animals are part of the family - Josephine the milking cow, a small beef herd, chooks, ducks & sometimes pigs. Our vegie garden is established, the orchard in the making. Most of our food is produced on the farm, but fishing trips supplement our diet, which is meaty, tasty & healthy. Work incl work in pastures, weeding, raking, fencing, help in vegie garden & orchard, feeding animals and building projects. Own transport preferable to take advantage of the beautiful surrounding area. Caravan accom for a single or a couple. No children. Meat-based meals. Non-smokers only. Negotiable stays after first few days. Cannot take WWOOFers during winter.

Farming Methods: Permaculture
Accommodation Type: In Our Home, Separate Building, BYO Accommodation
All Foods Farm is situated in Buffalo, South Gippsland , Victoria. The farm has been operating since 2004 and is run on sustainable agriculture and permaculture principles, with emphasis on organically grown, fresh produce. As sustainable property we grow a wide variety of fruits and vegetables, mostly as older styles and heritage varieties. With a mixed orchard of apples, pears, stone fruits and berries we supply our customers with fresh, seasonal produce that they rarely get to experience when shopping at any large scale supermarket. In the picking season for fruit we attend local Farmers markets. Our current project is establishing our shop frontage directly from the property.  We are a bit more than a hobby farm, but not quite  a commercial farm.

We decided to join WWOOF as a means for contributing towards the lives and livlihoods of farmers in rural communities. We are in a unique position where we can offer our time and skills and thereby hopefully instil a deeper love and respect for our country and its diverse environment in the hearts and hands of our sons.

I joined WWOOF because when I was studying in Tasmania and traveling around, I met many WWOOFers from all over the world who had all really enjoyed their experience traveling around Australia this way. When I returned to the United States after studying in Tasmania, I got connected with some local organic farms near my home university in Colorado, where I worked as an intern and taught other community members about the importance of organic agriculture. Now that I am finished with my degree, I want to travel back to Australia and experience different styles of organic agriculture while exploring the beautiful country.

City/Town: Tamworth
Farming Methods: Biodynamic
Accommodation Type: In Our Home
Our farm is located 33km west of Tamworth NSW, on 460 acres. It is a beautiful part of NSW, a few hours inland from the coast and about 5 hours north of Sydney, 7 hours south of Brisbane. We live at the end of a dirt road on the top of a hill with no neighbours in site, this really is “country Australia!”. We breed horses and farm beef cattle. Our focus is on regenerative agriculture - using sustainable farming practises to improve and regenerate soils and the environment, and enhance productivity. We have owned our farm for 8 years and are building new infrastructure to improve it, including fencing and water troughs. We have around 30 horses at most times with several foals born each year. We breed quarter horses, that we then break in and train for the western sport of “cutting”, which involves working cows. You can check out our Facebook page Three Leaf Stud to see more about our horses. Rafe competes in cutting and reined cow horse when he has time, and I compete in the English disciplines of Eventing, show jumping, and dressage. So we have a range of horses, not just quarter horses, also thoroughbreds and warmbloods. Depending on the time of year, you may experience foaling season, starting horses under saddle, or horse shows. If you are a competent rider you may have the chance to ride regularly,  however this can’t be guaranteed until we see your skills in practice! A typical day here involves feeding and checking all the horses twice a day, checking water troughs and fence lines, and feeding cattle. We operate a hydroponic fodder factory sprouting barley seeds for our cattle, so seeding this, cleaning it and feeding out the fodder is a daily process. We ride most days and then the tasks vary from day to day, sometimes it’s fencing, or helping build something, fixing something, gardening, every day is different! Our house is quite modern and air conditioned, you will have your own room in our house with a beautiful view and bathroom, WiFi. We expect you to be clean and tidy and to help with things like doing the dishes, we cook and eat a mixed diet with meat and vegetables... and chocolate. We are both 40, no kids, friendly labrador called BenDog and a cool stable cat called BobCat. We treat people as we expect to be treated, and believe that in life, you get back what you put in!
